Can I give my 6 months old baby cypri Gold? Can you give Cypri gold to children that are 1 year old and above?
This a question one of the readers of nimedhealth.com.ng asked me some time ago.
According to the mail:
My 6 months old baby is finding it difficult to gain some weight and he is not very active… Though he is not sick per se, I want to help boost his appetite with Cypri Gold so that he can gain some weight and eat more. Can I give my 6 months old baby Cypri Gold?
You can give your 6 months old baby Cypri Gold. Cypri Gold is not contraindicated in babies. Cypri Gold has been found to help underweight babies to add some flesh. Cypri Gold also helps your baby to sleep well at night….It helps to boost your babies appetite. It is an appetizer for babies between 6 months or even 1 year.
You can go ahead and give your 6 months baby Cypri Gold.
However, it is important for you to take note of the side effects of Cypri Gold..
Some of the common side effects of Cypri Gold are drowsiness, tired feeling, sleep problems (insomnia), dizziness, spinning sensation, blurred vision, loss of coordination, upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, appetite changes, weight gain, restlessness or excitability (especially in children), numbness or tingly feeling, increased sweating or urination, thickening of mucus in the nose or throat and dry mouth.
Also, it is important to educate you on why your baby may not be eating well or as you expected..
1. Zinc Deficiency
One of the major constituents that are necessary for the stomach to digest the food is hydrochloric acid. This also helps trigger the feeling of hunger. Zinc is primarily responsible for the production of this acid. So, if your child has a low appetite, there might be a possibility of him suffering from zinc deficiency. This can be easily set back in balance by tweaking the diet. The inclusion of chicken, cashew nuts, wheat bran, pumpkin seeds, and other items that are rich in zinc can help bring the levels back to normal.
